4 stars A two LP compilation of two of Genesis greatest triumphs can never be a bad thing. Here are the quintessential Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot in all their glory. The highlights are obvious with Watcher of the Skies and the magnum opus Suppers Ready as an indispensable Genesis 23 minute eargasm.

The Musical Box is always a brilliant journey with Gabriel at his best, as well as The Return Of The Giant Hogweed and Seven Stones. The Fountain Of Salmacis is also a wonderful treat, so if you haven't been graced with the Gabriel era Genesis this is a good start.

The cover art and liner arts are of considerable interest along with the fact this is a rarity on vinyl. Definitely worth sitting in a room with this music defining a wall of sound in perhaps the best era of Genesis history with the definitive line up.
